This Hilton is in an excellent location. It's just a few blocks from the White House and to all of the amazing museums. It is very reasonably priced as well. The room we had was also very spacious and clean.

Hotel's Favourite
My wife works remote from home but we wanted a little change in scenery and decided to come to DC and work from the hotel. We are so glad we picked the Hilton Capitol. It’s an older hotel but well kept. The restaurant and bar was closed because of COVID, but you have plenty of other options within walking distance. But they do have breakfast take out options. But what makes this hotel stand out is their staff. Everyone of them stand out and always greeting us coming in and going out. True professionals and they always make you feel like you are part of their family. Theresa Thomas was especially someone who stood out. Whenever we had any requests she always went up and beyond to make sure they were taken care of. She was always so pleasant and you could tell she loved her job any always wanted to make sure guests felt special. I don’t give many 5 star reviews, but the Capitol Hilton and especially the staff are deserving.

Dear Hans M., Thank you for your review of our Capital Hilton. Our staff works hard to deliver outstanding service. It was a pleasure to read that you enjoyed your visit and that you were impressed with our impeccable hotel. Enjoying the charm of our hotel, its history, and being so close to the White House and so many Washington D.C. attractions and dining experiences, certainly makes our location enviable. We were happy to be a respite to alleviate the tedium that sometimes sets in with remote working. We will certainly pass on your gratitude to all our colleagues with a special thanks to Theresa for looking after you so well. We await your return in the near future! Regards, Stefan M., GM

Stayed at Capital Hilton for 3 nights; Aug 27-30, 2021. Of about 64 hours in WDC, 15 hours were spent out walking the city, 5 minutes in a coffee shop and the rest in my room or the lobby bar at the Capital Hilton. Came home with several bug bites on body areas only exposed in my room. My dermatologist identified them as bed bug bites. One became infected and I developed cellulitis. I have made repeated calls to the hotel; twice I got through to a manager. Both times I was promised a call back regarding this issue and to date, 2.5 weeks post checkout, not one call back. Food and staff in lobby bar were great. Digital checkin was great but getting bit by bugs was horrible. Management lack of response was unbelievable.

Dear cbyrneolson, Thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience at Capital Hilton, as much as it pains us to read it. We’re particularly sorry for our slow response time communicating with you. This was wholly unintentional, however, the end result was regrettably that you felt ignored. I apologize. Though we have had no other guest complaint, we made the extra gesture of having expert evaluation and was assured that our hotel is bug-free. I do empathize that you have suffered bug bites and do wish you a speedy recovery. Warm regards, Stefan M., General Manager

Visited this property three times in the last year - twice for a magic show and once just for drinks. Excellent Bar staff and friendly service. sent a colleague to stay there a couple nights when they were visiting in town and they echo the high level of service. Cheers!

My wife and I came to DC to see the Festival of Magic and see the sights downtown. The Capital Hilton was in a great location -- walking distance to everything you want to see in DC -- and a really good venue for the Magic Festival. It had a nice bar area with good food an excellent walk-around magician. The event hosted 6 magic acts over the weekend, and must-see magicians Curry, Fern, Block and Wood were all mind-blowing - I HIGHLY recommend seeing them if you get a chance.
